2014 Virginie de Valandraud 75CL
The palate is medium-bodied with ripe tannin, a keen thread of acidity, surprising backbone and body with a vibrant, mineral-rich finish. This has great potential.
Born in 1992 as the second wine of Château Valandraud, Virginie de Valandraud is named after Jean–Luc Thunevin and Murielle Andraud’s daughter. Since 1997, and the ever increasing Thunevin vineyards in the Saint Emilion area, Virginie de Valandraud has developed its own identity while being grown and vinified the same way and by the same team in charge of Château Valandraud. If Virginie de Valandraud may be seen as a second wine, it’s mainly because of its high quality standards but it has stepped out of its “big brother’s” shadow to rightfully become an independent cuvée.
